The record flooding in Louisiana becomes spooky. A real zombie flooding.
Killer floods are causing caskets to float to the surface in several cemeteries in southwestern parts of the state.
Caskets unearthed from low-lying cemeteries by more than a week of rain were spotted Tuesday floating in flooded Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana.
Do not go to the cemeteries. These vaults weigh 1,600 to 1,800 pounds; caskets are full of water.
The issue is somewhat common in low-lying cemeteries when waters rise, especially in the South.
Louisiana officials were forced to retrieve hundreds of floating coffins after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
Record flooding is inundating the Sabine River, which forms part of the border between Louisiana and Texas.
Deweyville, Texas, is also reporting its highest flood levels on record, forcing the town’s 1,000 residents to evacuate.
Fortunately, no rain is in the forecast for the next few days for the most drenched areas. However flood and high wind warnings remain in effect for the area.
Last week rain and violent thunderstorms killed six people and forced thousands more to flee their homes in Louisiana.
